    MK38 Trap > Sporter recommendations?

    I'm with you - I've decided it's a silly move financially and not worth the outlay. I've spoken to EJ and refund is an option, therefore I'll look at S/H market. If you guys come across MK38s that have had extended teagues/adjustable stock do shout. I'm keeping on top of Gun Trader and Gun Star.

    Thats why I suggested the second hand route, some one else has already shelled out for teagues etc, let them take the brunt of the loss, that way if its not what you get on with parting is only a minor glitch.

    ++1 The sow's ear / silk purse thing is an absolute loser every time. Even if you are happy with it (presuming you actually know WTF you want to start with) at some time you will move on and take the hit. I'm not a Blaser fan BUT you should at least give some thot to what Will says, not to mention a number of other easily affordable guns for the numbers you put up. Your project is an outrageous expenditure for what amounts to a lark. IMO you really need to step back and take a hard look at you're doing. JMO of course - - YMMV BTW I've seen otherwise beautiful quality guns up to and including Fabbris with Teagues or Brileys that sit for YEARS on the for sale rack simply because there are similar guns available for a few $ more that have not been mutilated.

    I’m not the biggest STR fan (mainly because I’m not that good at it probably), but I have really enjoyed all the recent EJC events. Today was no exception. 4 layouts each with a distinct character. The first one was weirdly deceptive and we all came off with low scores. A bit more as expected after that. 84, so nothing spectacular but as I say, very enjoyable.

    Yes, last two layouts were hard. 3 was just fiddly as heck and all long targets on 4. I did a 24 on no2. Otherwise not my best day..

    Owls today, Sportrap went on tod and was squadded with a nice quartet form more SW than SE so my bumpkin accent was at home, one had, well by this ones standards a rather good start, big 😊 after L1 & L2, oh then stuttered on some rather tricky simos on L3 before my own l-r demons took over on L4, overall though one had a pleasant afternoon and was glad I went, pc was down when I left so no idea of scores

    Did you try a Blaser yet? EJC have them as Club guns so you can borrow to try. They have stock and forend weights, so you can adjust the feel very well.

    Could I point out that if you so much as fit an alternative pad to a new Browning / Miroku according to BWM you will invalidate the guarantee ! ! ! ! Be very careful , it could be an expensive route you are going down . Refund and buy what you can find /like /fits/ suits is the best way to go . For the sort of money you are spending I would certainly look at CG as an alternative .

    Seriously, try a second hand CG Invictus if you can find one. If you cant, try a Summit.

    They are normally £40 going competition for registered 100 bird sporting shoots at Steve’s grounds. less for birds only.

    So the maths make you right I feel @GlawsterOldCodger Gun: £2900 Adjustable system £250 Teague the gun: £320 x 4 Teague chokes £216 Total: £3686 before a pad change and spacer. This is a lot of money - and there must be something (even a S/H MK38) off the shelf for no more than £2500 which ticks all of the above. (Before anybody says it I have completely lost my faith in the B725 which makes it a non-starter for me).

    I think everyone struggled on the battue. I struggled on the first bird on Stand 2, was OK on the green going away one. They like eyesight tests at Gatton Bottom, the incomer on the platform wasn't easy to see either as it was so edgy (although I shouldn't complain as I hit all of them).

    It was Gatton Bottom for me too and I enjoyed it, we enjoyed the wind effects, the clays were all over the place, this cost us a few and the overall scores were not high as a result. I thought green clays against a green field was a bit fiendish on stand 2? and the teal especially were "variable." The battue on stand 1 was my undoing.

    Kinglsey Moor for me yesterday. ESP. Course was nice and varied. My first time at the ground I was impressed with the geography of it - big valley for some low going away targets and nice flat field up the top for simo rabbits. The wind didn't half interfere with the birds. I seen a couple of dropping targets fly up the opposite way and start rising haha it made it interesting but for somebody like me (class C) it was a bit tougher.

    Just watched that. It's the same as mine, although mine's 32". I have the slimmer forend too. Love it to bits - use it for sporting. Can't say that I have too much bother with cleaning though - that said I'm pretty meticulous, being an engineer. I enjoy your youtube vids. Not read this thread yet in its entirety but I always watch your videos, The Gun Shop videos, Dave Carrie films and Ian Harford's Team Wild Vids.

    might not recover?(understatement) very few things I am sure of, but losing monies on any change of equipment is mostly a certainty, especially if its altered from stock condition, doesnt matter if its a camera or car etc, thats how life works!

    We got that selection of targets just by shooting the ABT in wind this morning.
